Ghosting backstage

Ghosting backstage, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

Backstage at the Southern Theater, prior to Quarter Toujours concert. Long exposure to capture the flurry of activity in the dark, tuning and preparing to go on stage.

Sometimes it's just plain fun to break all the rules in photography. It was very dark backstage and so I knew I would not be able to get a "regular" kind of photo. So, I decided to play with light painting. The really cool thing about this photo, I think, is that it was a 2.5 second exposure, hand held, and I was able to get the effect I was after - namely the ghost image of the cellist entering through the door.
